SGS4 only getting Quad Core in UK!!!

Just seen this about the SGS4 only being quad core in the UK..... oO

http://crave.cnet.co.uk/mobiles/samsung-galaxy-s4-is-quad-core-in-the-uk-not-octa-core-50010712/#comment-submit

I am due an upgrade and was tempted by the GN4, SXZ or HTC1 but would have preferred the more future proofed SGS4's octa core... now that isn't going to happen, I might as well save a bundle of cash and get one of the above made out of nicer materials too...

Can this be true about only quad core in UK? Whats the point of that and who is getting the 8-core then and why are they better than the UK?

I doubt it will make any difference in performance. I bet that new Tegra chip will beat SG4, because it will arrive later.
It's possible that Exynos doesn't support LTE and there will be octo core available without LTE.

Its lies . Were getting the 8 core one

I reckon Ahmad is right. And anyways... there are still no apps that make proper use of the quad-cores around. And the dual-core HTC One S was as fast, if not faster than the quad-core big brother, the One X...
Those cores are thrown at us in absence of anything truly innovative.

Not saying you guys are wrong, but if you read the article it does seem that this info has come from the horses mouth.... of course thats not to say they won't release the quad core and then the octo core in 6 or 12 months.....

Just to throw it in there, I hear we're getting both. By "I hear", I mean that's what SamMobile are saying and they're rarely ever wrong.

GT-I9500 / GT-I9505 = Samsung to bring both versions
GT-I9500 / GT-I9505 – United Kingdom

Suspect you are the other one somehow, until the other moron logs in with his other account.

Front page? It went to a relevent article about the S4 for me..... ok you might already have seen it so was of no interest to you, but others might not have seen it so might be useful to them.

Oh dear, can't take a bit of banter so resorts to calling people morons...

So you can say I'm on my period and I can't call you a moron? Besides I recall your theory on LG mobile suffering through making more money...

CTPAHHIK  Mar. 21, 2013 at 17:00

Ok, kids, let's learn to share. Anyone is allowed to click on the link :p

Yeah no one will notice the article on the main page will they. Sheesh. Can feel the average iq dropping every time you post.

AhmadCentral  Mar. 21, 2013 at 17:09

Guys, guys, guys.

Lets not fight! Come on, group hug everyone :)

mightyforest  Mar. 21, 2013 at 17:20

ill be honest the way mines saved i dont always come through to the main page. resident grump hey pondlife ;)

matt101101 / MOD  Mar. 21, 2013 at 17:52

Children, play nicely or I'll have to do some boring moderating stuff to you all!

JanSt / MOD  Mar. 21, 2013 at 18:58

I'll turn around now and count to ten. By 9 I want those zippers up again

How simple do I have to make this.... not everyone will come in through the main page.... and you question my IQ...?

Oh and if you want to return to the LG debate, lets do that on the relevent thread, but let me remind you where we finished on that one... my last post mentioned the $249 million loss that LG made... after which you didn't bother replying again... perhaps you realised I may have a point?

Now, can we get back to talking about phones or are you going to continue along the "moron / idiot / low IQ" route.... seriously take a chill pill mate, I honestly don't try to get your back up so not sure how I manage to push your button so much.

Whenever this type of thing happens on a forum, I always remember the old adage "arguing on a forum is like running in the special olympics, even if you win, you're still retarded" (and just because i'm affraid anything I say will be taken the wrong way now, i'm calling you a retard etc...)

If we can now get back to sensible mature debate on phones then great, if not then (and you may quite like this option) then I won't be replying to you on this particular thread again.
